Bornwird village (Boarnwert)

Flag: Diagonally divided from top-hoist to fly-bottom of blue and white; in the center a fleur-de-lis of 3/4 flagheight, white on blue and red on white.
Bornwird (Frisian: Boarnwert) is a very small village in formerly West Dongeradeel - as indicated by the flag: diagonal from top hoist to bottom fly as in the former municipality flag. The lily has been derived from the Coat of Arms of the Aylva family (say: Alüa). <It is not totally insignificant as my mother was born there and the 'Hervormde' church is very old (and well worth a visit.)> White and red are the colors of the old bishop-colors of Utrecht.
